A Day In My Life || 09/01/2017

Back when I first started this blog (two years ago this May!) I wrote a post detailing a day in my life. Well, things have changed a lot since then, most notably the fact that I'm now employed! So I figured it was time for an updated "day in my life" post. I chose Monday 9th January 2017, firstly because it was the first day back in the office after the Christmas break, and secondly because I actually only work Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I really wanted to show you a typical day in my life when I'm at work, so here goes!

Snackin'*|| With MunchPak

I'll be honest with you guys; I've been struggling with the decision to publish this review for almost a year now. You might be wondering why. After all, it's just a review of a snack box. The problem is, I really didn't like my MunchPak Mini. But I didn't want to write a bad review. Then I realised, I don't have to!

Boxing Day Sales Haul Post!

Who doesn't love a good haul post, right?! Today's post is a little different, as I'm sharing with you what I've been picking up in the Boxing Day/January sales recently! Let's jump right in with some Lush stuff!

I tried to get online on Boxing Day to pick up a few bits in the Lush sale, but I was stuck in a queue for hours (anyone else?!) and every time it was my turn I was caught up in a game of Jenga or Uno with the family and missed my slot! When I finally managed to get on, it was to find out the sale was over! So when I went into a Lush store the next day, I wasn't expecting much. But, surprisingly, they had quite a lot of Christmas stock left - all half-price! I grabbed Snow Fairy Body Conditioner, Santa's Belly Shower Jelly, Northern Lights Bath Bomb, Magic Wand Bubble Bar, So White Bath Bomb, Autumn Leaf Bath Bomb, and  (I think) Luxury Lush Pud.

30 before 30!

I've taken the inspiration for today's blog post from a blogger I hugely admire and respect; Queen Beady. She recently shared the 30 things she wants to achieve before she turns 30 on her own blog. And with me turning 27 this year, I thought it was time to share my own list (you know, after I'd come up with one, of course!) So today I present to you, in no particular order, my 30 before 30 list...

Favourite Books of 2016!

At the end of last year I wrote a blog post sharing my favourite books of 2015. This continued a series from my previous book blog, Just A Little Review Blog, which no longer exists. I really enjoy writing these blog posts; looking back over the books I've read each year, and sharing a little bit about what makes them a favourite. So I decided I'd continue this series into 2016. And now, without further preamble, I present to you my favourite books of 2016...

It's not at all surprising to me that the Harry Potter Illustrated Edition made it onto my favourite books of 2016 list. Jim Kay is a fantastic illustrator, and the story of Harry Potter just never gets old.

2016 was the year...

Last year, I shared with you all some of the best moments of 2015. And I thought I'd do the same this year; especially as 2016 turned out to be one of the best years yet! 

...we got engaged!

After almost 6 years of being, and living, together, my other half finally popped the question! Now we're looking forward to 2017, and our wedding!

January Goals!

I've already written a blog post about my goals for the year ahead. And while I'm working towards them all year long, I'm also going to be setting myself five, or so, monthly goals. I started setting myself monthly goals at some point last year, and it's really helped keep me on track with my yearlies, and keep me motivated. Before I lay out my January goals, I'm going to check back in on my December goals. Let's see how I got on...
